Alignment of recombination sites in Hin-mediated site-specific DNA recombination.


The Hin site-specific recombination system normally promotes inversion of DNA between two recombination sites in inverted orientation. We show that the rate of deletion of DNA between two directly repeated recombination sites is 10-300 times slower than inversion between sites in their native configuration as measured in vivo and in vitro, respectively.
